Guest House Gräskö
Anders Berensson Architects has redesigned and rebuilt a scrubby storage into a guesthouse in the Stockholm archipelago. The house can accommodate four to eight guests depending on comfort. Due to a tight budget new inventions had to be made as well as second hand purchases from Blocket, a Swedish secondhand site.
Most windows used in the rebuilding was found in the house. For major openings new windows has been made out of Plexiglas and designed to look like openings without window frames.
Furniture has been designed to accommodate four people in a standard mode. At bigger celebrations the furniture can fold out to fit eight people.
The inner roof of the shed has been removed and replaced with a pitched roof allowing a loft in the guest house. In the main room the exposed beams serves as a rig for lighting as well as a storage space. A wooden beam carry the new loft as well as serving as a room divider in the hallway, a door stoop, a clothes hanger and support for the ladder to the loft.
